Adams Marimba

Adams Marimba


I sampled this marimba last year at my school and am pleased to have finally had the time to finish it, in the end I have sampled every note with 3 dynamic layers p, mf and f. This was done both as hits as well as rolls. My approach to the rolls is quite simplified, I did looping for all of the notes but the release triggers are more clunky as they literally activate as you lift the note. For future projects I could make this much cleaner but it involves marking the start point of every hit of every roll for every dynamic layer! Unfortunately, I didn’t have access to a great room so there are a few things rattling on some notes (this was reduced significantly by throwing drum sticks at lights!) but overall I am pleased with the outcome!

Note: The HITS and ROLLS are using key switches which appear blue on the kontakt keyboard!
